Parallel Perceptrons, Activation Margins and Imbalanced Training Set Pruning

Parallel Perceptrons, Activation Margins and Imbalanced Training Set Pruning
A natural way to deal with training samples in imbalanced class problems is to prune them removing redundant patterns, easy to classify and probably over represented, and label noisy patterns that belonging to one class are labelled as members of another. This allows classifier construction to focus on borderline patterns, likely to be the most informative ones. To appropriately define the above subsets, in this work we will use as base classifiers the so–called parallel perceptrons, a novel approach to committee machine training that allows, among other things, to naturally define margins for hidden unit activations. We shall use these margins to define the above pattern types and to iteratively perform subsample selections in an initial training set that enhance classification accuracy and allow for a balanced classifier performance even when class sizes are greatly different.
